The university is embarking on its first major capital campaign – a $300 million private-public initiative to build a Research Tower in the South Texas Medical Center and recruit leading scientists for it.
The Research Tower proposal calls for a building of up to 300,000 square feet and as many as 20 stories tall. "It will be a building that will transform the South Texas Medical Center," Dr. Cigarroa said. The Medical Center is the hub of health care and research in San Antonio and is a major site for the $12 billion-a-year biosciences industry, the largest sector in the city’s economy. The UTHSC is the premier health research institution in South Texas.
The five-year campaign began in January and will conclude in December 2008.
